Dance is not just the one thing, and it is becoming less and less what its name initially suggests. The idea of CYCLES arose as the best way to publish the thoughts, processes and actions of guest choreographers and non-choreographers from a carefully considered point of view.
The Ruidos de fondo (background noises) cycle focuses on words, and the idea that text is an undercurrent which is always present, but not necessarily directly visible in stage works. These textual bodies that go hand in hand with the ideas of the artists sometimes become the code and nucleus of the work presented publicly, but at other times they remain as a parallel element that feeds and detaches itself from the visible work.
Encounters and games with the written signs of:
La Porta has invited three choreographers to an informal space where they can show and share with audiences material that is indirectly related to the discourse visible in their stage works (texts, drawings, images, influences...). The idea is to reveal and publish non-visible thought - the textual body in the background of their creative processes - and to set up parallels and points of contact between artistic dance and other languages.
